Sex Crime Defense in Utah
Many people who actually were raped don’t report it, and many who were not raped lie about being raped as a tool for getting revenge. Is your accuser an ex? A rape allegation can follow an unhappy breakup. There are other situations where gray areas exist as well:
- Is this an instance of consensual sex, but the person was underage (statutory rape)?
- Is the person being accused mentally ill and his or her behavior influenced by the mental illness?
- Was the sex act consensual until a later time when the person decided to “withdraw” her/his consent?
If you have been charged with rape, attempted rape or aggravated sexual assault, contact a Utah sexual battery lawyer at Greg Smith and Associates. Call 801-651-1512.

Beware of the risks of sex without consent: NEVER have sex with a drunk or intoxicated person! Once the intoxication wears off, the person forgets that she/he consented to sex and a one-night stand becomes a criminal charge of rape. It’s hard to protect yourself after the fact, but if you have text messages or emails from that person, hang onto them. If people saw you together that night, make a note of it. This information may be useful in your defense.
Were You Charged With False Imprisonment?
Sexual assault charges may be accompanied by other charges such as kidnapping or unlawful imprisonment. With an aggressive criminal defense, we may be able to get those charges reduced to the least incriminating — or even achieve a dismissal of all charges.
